I was on vacation last week, but still made a bunch of progress:

- Languages now load properly.

- Added a hotkey and context menu for toggling full screen on the main window.

- Updated the off-screen check for the Settings window at startup.  Now the TD knows which displays are available and just moves the Settings window back on-screen if it's off-screen (if an extended display is no longer connected, for example).  This works for all windows now, and should work in real time.  That is, if you unplug a display on which the Settings window is currently displayed, you can close and re-open the Settings window using the ESC key and it will open on an actual display.  I think a future version will be able to detect a display change in real time and move any open windows, too.  But this is a good incremental improvement.

- Refactored the Game window context menu.  Now all player actions and screen selections are in sub-menus.  This makes the menu more compact and usable.

- Restyled the hotkeys dialog.

- Change the Game window update rate from twice a second to 10 times a second to see if this is feasible with new framework.  Didn't notice any change in CPU usage.  If this works out, it should reduce times when the clock seems to stay on the same time for longer than 1 second or where 1 second seems to last for a fraction of a second or get skipped entirely (the time is accurate, but the screen isn't updated enough).  Testing will bear this out, but it's very positive.

- Fixed drag-and-drop on the Tables tab.

- Basically fixed nearly the entire Rounds tab functionality.

- Fixed the column chooser/export dialogs common to most tabs.

- Got printing to work!  Printing now works without goofy header/footer that IE adds, printing can be done interactively or without intervention, "Auto Print" is no longer necessary, and selection of preferred printer is now possible.  There's also an option to print to PDF, since that is native to Chrome, which I can add later if there's interest.
